REFEREE NEWS

Recent change to the substitution procedure used in Wisconsin youth games regulated by the United States Soccer Federation:


"At any stoppage of play, either or both teams may ask and expect the referee to permit substitutions for players. "

We're taught that referees should exercise judgment to sustain the flow of a game. Is there a frequent game-situation where a referee may decide that, despite the appearance of "stoppage," the play continues and the referee may legally delay substitution until the next true stoppage occurs?


Yes! A frequent situation is the "quick-restart" free kick where the kicking team makes no request to the referee to provide a 10-yard gap. A referee should not permit a request for substitution to take away the advantage that the quick-restart will provide the kicking team.
